What is your role at the DIS?
I am a Counsel with the DIS Case Management Team. In that function, together with the Case Administrators, I administer arbitral proceedings according to the DIS Arbitration Rules.
What path led you to the DIS?
I spent the first five years of my „working life“ in the field of data protection law, working with a supervisory authority for 3,5 years and then as an attorney. Because of private circumstances that made it necessary to relocate from Rhineland-Palatinate – where I was born and where I grew up – to Bonn, I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter in my career as well.
The open position at the DIS was the first job ad I came across in my search for a new job. When I was a student, I worked as a research assistant within the field of dispute resolution.
